52 Book Challenge: Week One

I heard about the 52 book challenge on the Books subreddit and was intrigued.  The goal is quite simple in its terms– read one book a week for the year, culminating in 52 books.  There are no qualifications.  Length, subject, genre, et c is of the reader’s choosing.  I decided to take up this challenge.

For the  first week, I am in the process of re-reading Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  Since I’ve been having trouble with less-structured things, I’ve decided starting with series is my best go.  My plan is to first work through the Hitchhiker’s series.  Then, I’m moving on to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy (which was meant to be one *really* long book).  Whilst I have read some of these books before, it’s been over a decade ago.  Re-discovering them will be nice.

Anyone else game?  Any recommendations?
